This pleasure flight for three people is an exciting chance to see Carlisle from an aerial perspective. Zipping into the skies from Carlisle Airport, you'll soon see this fascinating city mapped out below. Immersed in history, Carlisle was once a 1st century Roman outpost and is now a bustling cultural, commercial and industrial centre. The city is also home to an 11th century castle, which looks truly resplendent from the sky. Cruising in a Cessna 172 light aircraft, the pilot will guide you through the scenery and take you back to Carlisle Airport.
